With the bye week over and some new faces looking to play, it is time for the Cowboys to start winning.

Backup quarterback Brandon Weeden is now sitting on the sidelines and will be watching quarterback Matt Cassel take the reigns of the Cowboys’ offense. It is now time to see what the new Cowboys will look like this week against the New York Giants.

The defense looks to be just about fully healthy, Christine Michael has taken over some of the running back duties, and maybe, just maybe, wide receiver Dez Bryant will play. This could be the week the Cowboys get back on that winning side.

More from Dallas Cowboys

With all of the press this last week about the Cowboys replacements, one of the most overlooked things with this team is possible coaching adjustments. Defensive Coordinator Rod Marinelli should now be able to fully unleash his defense, which we will cover in the next few pages. Head Coach Jason Garrett should be able to open the playbook a little more for Matt Cassel, and special teams should have a kick in pants with a week of practice and a few tweaks to the returners.

So what do the Cowboys really have to do to win, what many are calling, a must win? Well welcome to week seven’s Five Things.
